Forums - Sales Discussion - Switch Sales Top 400K, PS5 LT Sales Top 23M - Worldwide Hardware Estimates for Sep 4-10

I wonder how many other systems have had a 400k+ week outside of the holiday period when over 5.5 years old. It wouldn't surprise me if the Switch is the only one so far.

Switch killing it. Too bad the Spatoon HW boost was limited only to Japan, numbers elsewhere are just normal. >400k is sure nice to see though. Gonna be pretty much right at 113m next week.
Really want to know what Splatoon global sales were for the first week!

That's a good question. I suspect the X360 may have done it during the Kinect surge.



Maybe the DS hit 400k especially when BW released? That would actually be closer to the 6 year mark.



Switch is in beast mode.
20 million plus in year 6 is on the cards, barring a major misstep, which is just crazy.



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023. (And over 130 million lifetime)

Nice boost for Switch. I think that was it .. The next weeks till holidays should be ~300k. With holidays I expect little decrease from last year. Last year Switch had holiday weeks of around 1M and black friday 1.4M. I expect this year most holiday weeks to be around ~900k and 1.2M for the black friday one. Way lower than the DS ones.. most of them being over 1.1M. And that is what will finish the Switch in around 20M for the year.

Especially with seeing PS5 and XBSX stock improving! Good thing. I expect both of them to really start hitting 300k weekly (PS5) and doing over 200k (XBSX) in october and reaching holiday numbers like 500-600k weekly with black friday maybe touching 1M. (all of this if the stock is really there of course.)

As for the PS4 .. @trunkswd  are we getting one last title for it next week ? for passing 117M ?

You tagged the wrong Trunks. But yes I think I will add that to the title next week.

The thing with Switch is that Nintendo can afford to parry the current inflation (while still making a profit) while the others have raised the prices (outside of US). So in effect we might actually/are seeing and price drop of the Switch currently by the means of Nintendo keeping the price at the same price point.

Just doesn't have the same feeling as a nice good fat $50-$100 price drop
